You may be wondering how P.U.R.E.™ could help your teenager and your family. Are you experiencing any of the following situations or feeling at a complete loss or a failure as a parent? You are not alone and by being a proactive parent you are taking the first step towards healing and bringing your family back together. P.U.R.E.™ is here to help you.
Does any of the above sound familiar? Many parents are at their wits end by the time they contact us, but one of the most important things to know is that you are not alone. There is help but parents need to be proactive and educate themselves in getting the right help.
Trying local therapy is always recommended, but in most cases, this is a very temporary bandaid to a more serious problem. One or two hours a week with a therapist is usually not enough to make the major changes that need to be done.
If you feel you are at your wits end and are considering outside resources, please contact us. An informed parent is an educated parent and will better prepare to you to make the best decision for your child. It is critical not to place your child out of his/her element. In many cases placing a teen that is just starting to make bad choices into a hard core environment may cause more problems. Be prepared and do your homework.
Many parents are in denial and keep hoping and praying that the situation is going to change. In many cases, the problems usually escalate without immediate attention. Don’t be parents in denial; be proactive in getting your teen the appropriate help they may need. Whether it is local therapy or outside the home assistance, be in command of the situation before it spirals out of control and you are at a place of desperation. This is not a pleasant place to be, but so many of us have been there.
Finding the best school or program for your child is one of the most important steps a parent can take. Remember, your child is not for sale– don’t get drawn into high pressure salespeople. Learn from our mistakes.
We search for schools and programs which:
- Help teens, not harm them
- Build them up, not break them down
- Have positive and nurturing environments, not punitive
- Encourage family involvement in programs, not isolation from the teen
- Protect children, not punish them
